main street ballroom | ellicott city wedding venue | baltimore wedding photographer

Have you ever googled 'unique Baltimore wedding venue'? Or maybe 'unique Maryland wedding venue'... since you're searching for the perfect wedding reception venue that has a combination of charm, character, amenities, flexibility, indoor/outdoor spaces and enough capacity to accommodate your large guest list?

Let me introduce you to Main Street Ballroom in Ellicott City!


Originally built in 1920 right on Main Street (hence the name, lol), if you're planning a wedding and looking for a unique space that you can dress up to make your own, you will probably fall in love with this 'ballroom' pretty quickly, as I did!


I had the pleasure of photographing mini engagement sessions back in November on Small Business Saturday when Ellicott City was abuzz in a post-flood grand reopening event. It was so reassuring to see so many people out and about, supporting so many local, small businesses!

These fabulous couples spent part of their afternoon with me and were so much fun to get to know as we explored the facility on a chilly day. You can see more from my time at the ballroom, here and here!


There's something so intimate about being in a space that is made up of so much history; solid stone walls with natural light pouring in, a clean, neutral aesthetic for you to make your own. Add some candlelight and let's talk about the romance factor...


Painted brick. White barn doors. Gray board and batten interior walls. Exposed stone foundation walls. Concrete floors. A river running outside the future patio. Yes, please!


I can't wait to see this new venue host many memorable events in the future! I look forward to photographing more couples and weddings here; I know that Kate, is ready to transform your day into one that is easy-going, flexible and fun!
